She is a great lady.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

I agree!  Thanks, Salpy!!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

A worthy subject!

Much love our dearest Salpy! hug, we are very thankful to have you here. May the Lord grant you many healthy, joyful and peaceful years! :-*
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

մերսի!   Pardon my French, Salpy.   ;)
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Perhaps she's observing Lent through her absence, as perhaps all of us should.

I'm not nearly that holy.   :D

I've been "burning the candle at both ends," as the saying goes, having my hands full with both family and work.  Over the last few months I've also been catching every cough and cold that is out there.  Please say a prayer for me.

It helps, though, that everyone here is being so nice to me.  Thanks, everyone.   :)

Since I am logged in here for the first time in a long time I figured I should reply to this.  Salpy, you are hands down my favorite poster on this board and you are in my top 3 as far as any christian board goes!  The way you handle this board and your approach to your face is amazing.  Your humble aproach to replies and your no confrontational manner if something I hope to imitate someday.  Thanks for your work on this board!  I don't know any Amrmanians in person, but you are a clearly an example of ripe fruit coming form that church!
